This little guy landed on me outside earlier today. I’m in northern Kentucky, Burlington to be exact. It’s a chilly day out, temps are in the low 50’s and it was drizzling earlier. I can’t seem to find a bug similar to this on the Web, and am curious to know what it is.
Thank you!

Dear Samantha,
As you can see by comparing your image to this BugGuide image, your insect is a Woolly Aphid in the family Eriosomatinae, but since many Woolly Aphids look quite similar, we cannot provide you with a genus nor species.
